Increasing access to university education through online learning.

Founded in 1958, the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais (PUC Minas) is one of Brazil’s leading universities and one of the largest Catholic universities in the world by congregation size. The university offers over 100 undergraduate and 700 postgraduate courses in a wide range of disciplines. Today, over 80,000 students are enrolled at the institution’s seven campuses across Brazil.

Committed to digital innovation, PUC Minas offers a mix of on-campus, distance, and blended learning to provide high-quality teaching to as many students as possible. Over the last two decades, the university’s decision to embrace remote learning has helped it to grow undergraduate enrollment from 288 students in 2003 to over 19,000 students today. Inspired by this success, PUC Minas is doubling down on its investment in digital learning technologies and preparing for further growth.
